These are good choices if you stay maximum 1 month or have serious dough to put in your accomodation. Both are like soviet condo blocks(or hotels) with some problems regarding short stays. VT& have serious problems with elevators during the high season and The Base is like hotel bits falling off already.

Only thing plus for them is the location. If you can bear 3rd road near Soi Buakhao(5min. walk), you can get new studios for 12-14kbht + couple of thousand for water&electr. without short staying tourists around making noise and other bad stuff.

Check out the new projects in that area, then contact the people/agency who rents them. I know the guy who has 2 new units in the City Center Recidence but unfortunately those units are not vacant until the 2019 as they are new, have the nice location and are pretty cheap compared to The Base and VT6.

Although city centre location looks ok, it looks like a longish walk to actually get to 3rd road as the entrance is on soi 8 bongkot (i think its called). Is that correct?

I only see them on air bnb and for a month they are not 12k.

Everyone has their own experiences, I was there December/January - high season and had no problem with the lifts.

If the lifts were a little bit busy, I would sometimes just use the service lift.

Most of the time a lift was available straight away at the times I used them.

absolutely no problems with the lifts in vt6 so you must have been there during a repair or something , if you wish to experience problems with lifts visit Markland .......... endless waiting and turtle speed elevators .

regarding the topic nothing is more convinient than vt6 , its absolutely spot on location wise for easy living while the base requires legwork for anything you wish to do .

Having lived for years in VT6, I have never experienced any issue with the lifts.

Yes, they can be crowded. And if on the 27th floor, as I am, sometimes waiting for two minutes or so.

As Yogi Berra said, 'it's too crowded, no one goes there anymore.'

Regarding The Base, consistently I have heard from owners, renters, and girls that 'visited' two comments: the rooms are 'very small' and 'LOTS of Chinese.'

So, if prices/amenities were roughly equal between the properties, for short/long term rental, I would choose VT6.

As always, up to you!

Prices aren't anything like equal between VT6 and The Base.  VT6 is generally about twice the price, though of course that varies condo by condo.  To suggest they are anywhere near the same price is nonsense.

Anyone with any contacts for renting in VT6 for 15 days in Dec this year.

I have been looking at the usual list of Dancewatchers, Honeys, Pat42, Kanya, etc.

Just wondered if there are any more i should look at.

I've paid around 1500 to 1800 per night so looking for the same.

Arrive on the 7th till 22nd.

Thanks

The only time I had a problem on VT6 was last year, there was a 15 min storm in April, and it must have hit some kind of power grid because only the service elevator was working... but that got resolved in a matter of hours.
The sea side view is just amazing from the high floors and the prices are average depending on your budget... paid around 2k per night i believe./

Very friendly security at the elevator, and access from both sides.
And a nice balcony for shisha which is best done after boom boom with or without TG.

VT6/ST--GENERALLY (low season) 1500B (48sq)

VT6/ST--GENERALLY (high season) 2000B (48sq)

VT6/LT--GENERALLY 18-25kB/month

The Base is 'generally' half of these prices...?

If so, the landlords there are making approximately ZERO (rental) return on investment.

Yes.

I only know about high season pricing, things could be different in lower season which I know little about.  In particular, if VT6 condos in low season were getting down towards B1000 a night, value could be appearing.

I'm used to staying in places like The Base or the soi 15 Avenue Urban City Garden group.  I look for 35-50 sq m, good internet, OK view not of wall opposite.  I'm accustomed to paying B700-800 per night for a monthly booking, ie very low 20s per month.  I have a booking coming up in high season at B740/night.  All prices include all commission but elec + water to be paid on top on departure.  These are AirBnB type prices for booking in advance, not yearly contracts to occupy immediately, which will always be ~30% cheaper.

Whenever I look at Honey etc on the WS side of VT6 the prices in the same high season seem to be B2200-2400 per night, maybe with a monthly etc discount which would bring it down to the B1500-2000/n level.  That's twice the price I'm used to paying.

I agree VT6 is a bit better than the soi 15 bunch, mainly for better location and view, depending of course on the specific condo.  I'd be willing to pay 30-40% more than my usual soi 15 pricing for a similar VT6, but when I see prices twice as much, maybe more than twice, I can't see the value.

IMO the reason for the VT6 premium is that it's almost the only condo block in town that is more than just a generic "room".  All the others are just unbranded "rooms" of a certain size selling into an oversupplied market.  VT6 is just about the only place in central Pattaya that is worth more than a standard "room".

VT6 monthly rentals are way too high compared to other condos - obviously view and popularity at a premium. I stayed Centara Residence condo also on Soi 15 and location is great - I would also consider Avenue and Urban as long term I like that area - will be interesting to see prices when Grand condo opposite hideaway when it opens next year.
